A few weeks ago my friend Willemijn and I had the pleasure to drive around in a Mercedes-Benz A-Klasse for a day. If you know me a little, you know that I absolutely L-O-V-E cars and of course I had to make the best out of my day in this brand new Mercedes-Benz car. Thus, Willemijn and I decided to drive from Utrecht to Leiden and start our day at the Ethnographic Museum (Volkenkunde Museum). At this museum we got the chance to visit the famous ‘World of Feathers’ exhibition that showcases all kinds of pieces made out of tons of feathers. Mostly headwear, but also capes and entire haute couture gowns and scarves from designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Thierry Mugler. I have to say, I absolutely loved the exhibition, and I can totally recommend it to anyone interested in fashion. Around noon Willemijn and I got hungry and drove our way to De Waag, a restaurant located in the beautiful heart of Leiden. You might have spotted this restaurant in magazines already, since it’s very popular these days. At De Waag we’ve had ourselves a well-deserved healthy lunch and some time to talk about love and life – you know, the usual. After lunch we still had plenty of time to go shopping. We visited many cute stores in the city centre of Leiden, including Antraciet and a selection of vintage stores.
Are you curious to see what our #fashionabledrive in Leiden looked like? Then take a look at the footage below and tell me what you think. Do you like the Mercedes-Benz A-Klasse car Willemijn and I had for the day? Personally I loved it, both from the outside as well as from the inside. If I could only drive that car every day!
